Super Sweet Blog of the Year!!!

Well I never!!! It seems we are the unwilling happy recipients of a couple more awards!! We have been inundated with two this week :) …

My Three Moggies have given us the Sickly Super Sweet Blog Award!

Now, as always, there are rules attached..

1. Give credit to the person who chose to nominate you: Thank you very much to My Three Moggies for thinking of us :)

2. Answer the ‘Super Sweet’ questions. See below
3. Nominate a “Baker’s Dozen (13) blogs. (We are going to break the rules here, so no need to run screaming from this blog in fear and trembling that you might have been picked ;)
Here are the Super Sweet Questions with Austin's answers:-
1. Cookies or Cake? Huh?
2. Chocolate or Vanilla? Huh?
3. What is your favorite sweet treat? Huh?
4. When do you crave sweet things the most? Huh?
5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? Humbug!
Austin is being a bit uncooperative - or he maybe stuttering! Am not entirely sure? But he is secretly very delighted…..

… so much so, that he had to take a private moment with the Christmas cactus!
Instead of picking 13 blogs, we are going to just say that if you haven't got the award already and would like it, then please, please take it because every one of CATachresis readers are sweet to come by here and share the lurve! :)

Also, from Nellie over at Cat from Hell blog, we have received the
Blog of the Year 2012
Can you see one star is lit up? We can apparently receive this award up
to six times before we are vaporised, or worse …signed up on a reality TV show!!  

The ‘rules’ for this award are:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award (Cat from Hell) – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
Austin has picked a few blogs on which to bestow the Blog of the Year award. This doesn't mean the rest aren't worthy because he reads avidly about elebenty gazillion blog posts every day, but just because …ok!!

His old buddy Spitty, The Spitster, because they have the odd brewski together and talk dirty!
The Horde at Katnip Lounge, as they are awesome!!
Mollie and Alfie, because they are crazy and make us laugh even when we don't want to!
The Trout Talkin Tabbies, just because we don't understand a werd they say about burds and trout, but we won't give up trying!!! ;)
Cathy Keisha of Stunning Keisha, the ghetto kitty who hides a heart of gold (oh yes she does;)

There are so many more we could choose and we hope that no one is upset that they weren't picked. If you were picked and don't "do" awards, then that's fine too :)

Exhausted now!!!!

conflates, con-flates - the bringing together of two or more breakfast cereals
